5 Tips for Easy Home Cooking
Many have brushed off old cookbooks or researched new recipes online to make delicious meals made at home. It's more important than ever to learn some tips for easy home cooking!
Like anything, a well-made meal is created by perfecting the little things before worrying about the final picture. Paying good attention to detail is one the most important factors in all cooking processes, listed below are the top tips that will help your meal-cooking process go smoother from start to finish.
1. Use the Right Tools and Utensils.
- The first and most important step in a smooth process is to have the proper tools for the job. Like a painter without their brush, a cook is useless without their utensils. Ecolution has a variety of cookware to give you the right type or size of pan you need. Use a non-stick chicken fryer pan to make large, one pan meals, or use our non-stick paella pan to make delicious paella. Having the right pan makes all the difference for your dish.
2. Use Fresh Food.
- A major benefit from home-cooking is that you get the ability to select exactly what you cook, and exactly what goes into your meal. With this in mind, it is always essential to be cooking with fresh food that you know is going to benefit your body and mind.
3. Stay Clean.
- One of most dreadful parts of cooking is the aftermath that is left behind. The best way to prevent a messy kitchen is to clean while you cook - make it easy cooking: wash down your utensils once you are done using them and place your cookware in the dishwasher once you are finished cooking in it. Along with washing your hands (frequently), cleaning your tools and vessels while you’re cooking will give you a much better cooking space, make after-meal clean up a breeze, and leave you with a feeling of accomplishment. Almost all of our cookware is dishwasher safe, so you can let the dishwasher do the dirty work, saving precious time in the kitchen.
4. Experiment, Try New Things!
- Fear of failure is the downfall of many great people, especially cooks! During these times of quarantine, you have an abundance of time to learn new things. Our suggestion for you is to give Samin Nosrat’s new podcast, Home Cooking, a listen. The author of Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat—a New York Times Best-Selling cookbook—created this podcast as a resource to help us with cooking.
5. Take Advantage of Your Resources.
